Project Ambition

The MycoSynVac project AIMS at using cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination.


  • Dr Maria Lluch, MycoSynVac co-coordinator, winner of the 2016 Derrick Edward Award by the International Organisation for Mycoplasmology

  • MycoSynVac 1st Annual Meeting took place in Bordeaux on October 18th and 19th 2016

  • Tools for genome engineering course.

    The course will be hosted in 2018 at INRA, Bordeaux. More information coming soon. Stay tuned!

  • Mycoplasma as universal chassis for vaccination

  • Current production processes of vaccines based on mycoplasma are very irreproducible and prone to contamination by animal viruses.

  • On the 24th and 25th of February 2016 the MycoSynVac team met in Brussels for the first project Review Meeting

  • Infection caused by Mycoplasma species on livestock result in multi-million losses in Europe and USA

  • Whole-Cell Modeling Course
    The goal of the 2017 Whole-Cell Modeling Course is to provide young investigators cutting-edge training in large-scale dynamical modeling and model integration.
